Talk about a family reunion. Thirty years after their first movie, two members of the Griswold family will reunite for a small screen project, according to a January 11 report by the Huffington Post.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo, who played wild and crazy couple Clark and Ellen Griswold in four “National Lampoon’s Vacation” movies, are teaming up for an ABC comedy pilot. The duo will play a pair of 60-something grandparents forced to raise their grandchildren.

While there’s no word if they’ll actually resurrect their Griswold characters for the TV comedy, it seems unlikely. According to Deadline, the still-untitled series will be about senior spouses who are “finally enjoying their golden years. They have raised their daughter, who is grown and now lives on the other side of the country with her two kids — and that’s the way these selfish grandparents like it; now they only need to see their grandkids a couple of times a year. But, due to circumstances beyond their control, they now are forced to raise their grandchildren.”

In the “Vacation” movie franchise the Griswolds had two children, a son, Rusty, and a daughter, Audrey.

Still, there’s no denying the couple’s comedic chemistry – no matter who they play.
